Mets Fall to Rockies, Despite Dickey’s Solid Start

Tyler Colvin hit a tying homer off R.A. Dickey in the fifth inning then made a diving play in the eighth to preserve the lead, and the Colorado Rockies beat the New York Mets 3-1 on Monday night.

Jonathan Herrera bunted for a hit in the top of the eighth and made his way around the bases with help from some inept defense to give Colorado a 2-1 lead.

Colvin’s first home run in 105 at-bats, denied the knuckleballer a chance at his 16th win and helped the Rockies to their sixth victory in eight games.

Rafael Betancourt, the Rockies’ fifth pitcher, put two runners on before getting Mike Baxter to fly out to center finishing his 24th save.
